There have been several updates recently about the continued progress with the track replaying at Waterworks, however there hasn't been much news on what (if anything) is being done about the landslip just north of Arley (where there was a 10mph TSR during the last part of 2016). It said that 'ground investigations' were taking place in one of the early updates by Chris Bond, but nothing on this since?

"At the moment there is little worth publicising. Ground investigations are continuing and eventually there will be a considerable amount of remedial work taking place (which shouldn’t affect train services).

Thank you for the reply. I just found it strange how quiet things seemed regarding this, especially considering how much concern there was at the end of last year about this site. I suppose nothing can be done until they establish exactly how/where the ground is shifting...[/quote]

This civil engineering work has been quite extensive. Has the total cost of the work been calculated? It must amount to quite a bit of money?

Dear Patrick, thank you for the response and gosh what an amount. I think it was mentioned somewhere that an insurance policy will cover most of this work.

Has the ash ballast, and the track, been replaced over this worksite, or is that still to be done, presumably in the shut-down period?**

As a matter of interest is there to be another track relay project over the January/February 2018 shut down?

**Edit: Apologies, this question is covered in the November report. The work is to be done over the shut down period.
